Ever since the stock of Nexus 4 was sold out by Google and the first glimpse of a device what looked like the next gen nexus smartphone on the Android KitKat unveil video, Nexus 5 has managed to become the most eagerly awaited smartphone in this quarter. Similar to other popular smartphones launched recently, Nexus 5 is also experiencing a barrage of leaks. But in an unprecedented fashion, at least with Google, a complete 281 paged service manual of the device got leaked revealing a lot more than what we even might want to know.

From line drawings of the LG-D821, a.k.a Nexus 5, to complicated pie charts and tables of different values and specifications, the service manual reveals it all. Though we managed to spot a few errors in the manual, but it should give us a proper insight on what we should expect from the device. Expected to be similar to the LG G2, under the hood the Nexus 5 has a lot of fire-power and should closely compete iPhone 5S.

The Nexus 5 packs a 4.95 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1080p and will come with a Snapdragon 800 chipset with a quad-core 2.3GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. As far as the optics goes, it has an 8MP OIS camera with a LED flash at the back and a 1.3MP shooter on the front, and a 2300mAh battery to power the device. Google along with LG has also finally ditched the non-removable battery and the glass rear-end for a more practical design.
